Murli takes 800 wickets‎

Sri Lankan ace spinner Muttiah Muralitharan has taken 800 test wickets. Muralitharan, who is playing his last Test match, had already taken six wickets in the match.

This performance, by Test cricket’s most prolific wicket-taker, who finished with figures of 5-63 for the innings, was integral to Sri Lanka’s dismissal of India for 276 in their first innings. And when Sri Lanka (who made 520 before declaring in their first innings) enforced the follow-on Murali added one more scalp before stumps on day four to edge closer to the milestone.

Currently, India are just 48 runs ahead and are staring at defeat at lunch on the final day with eight of its batsman back in the pavilion.
